Funky Byron Bay outfit Swamp Stompers headed for Yamba

FORMED in mid-2012, The Swamp Stompers have already made waves in the Australian music scene with their dirty slide guitar blues and heavy grooves.

The trio has played at the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival and the busking tent of the Byron Bay Bluesfest two years running with stand-out performances.

They have also released two EPs accompanied with matching national tours, finished runner-up in the prestigious Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Competition and second overall in the QLD state final of the National Campus Band Competition along the way.

The Byron Bay based trio, made up of Corey Legge (guitar/lapsteel/lead vocals), Luke Ligtenberg (bass/ didgeridoo/vocals), and Mitch Broadhead (drums/ backing vocals), play with raw power and energy, creating a huge sound and a live show which has to be seen to be believed.

Unlike many other bands, The Swamp Stompers have a distinctive difference with not one but two front-men offering contrasting lead vocal styles, adding an intriguing and unique approach to their sound and shows.

With rave reviews and a growing army of fans along the way, this band is on the rise.

Blending blues with funk and rock, the band plays a solid mix of catchy originals and covers by artists such as Led Zeppelin and John Butler which are sure to get you up and moving on the dance floor.
